Alverno Presents Sexy Results: Cedar Block’s Dig for the Higgs and How the Quest was Won

Feb. 14, 2012

It’s a new-fangled variety show that tells the story of one man’s love of science, the trash-talking particle accelerator that broke his heart, and the much-theorized Higgs Boson particle that will answer the Big Question – that’s right -- Life, The Universe, and Everything.
An Alverno Presents commission, “Sexy Results: Cedar Block’s Dig for the Higgs and How the Quest was Won,” is an evening-length mash-up of rock, spoken word, artist installations and video that takes place Saturday, February 18th at 8 p.m. at the Turner Hall Ballroom. Single tickets are $15.00, and may be purchased through the Alverno Presents Box Office at 414-382-6044, on-line at http://alvernopresents.alverno.edu, or through Turner Hall at http://pabsttheater.org/show/cedarblock2012.
The hypothetical Higgs Boson particle should answer the question of what gives particles mass, lending credence to everything else that goes into the standard model of physics. It's proved elusive through 30 years of experiments, and the first physicist to find it will be guaranteed a Nobel Prize.
Cedar Block wants that Nobel Prize, but they're going about it a little differently. In the tradition of Monet and Cezanne, they expect to make the discovery through art. Specifically, Cedar Block is corralling Milwaukee- and nationally-based musicians, installation artists, and filmmakers to find the elusive Higgs at Turner Hall. Even if they don't, they're still putting on an awesome show.
